HOW OUR MEMBERS CONTRIBUTE:
The Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Denver Psychoanalytic Society
are dedicated to the advancement of the understanding of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic ideas. We believe that psychoanalysis provides a unique and unparalleled perspective of the human condition based upon a deep respect for the complexity and individuality of every person.
Each year our faculty and society members join together to contribute toward training, supervision, mentoring and participating in community outreach projects within our community. During the academic year, our faculty contributes over a thousand hours training licensed mental health professionals. We sponsored a task force in response to the Columbine School shootings. We provided volunteer debriefing services to the community in the aftermath of the tragedy. Subsequently, several articles were published to summarize what we learned from that experience, to provide educational information to be used by other professionals.
["Healing After Columbine: Reflections of Psychoanalytic Responders to Community Trauma" by Mary Ann Levy , Pamela Haglund, Linda Plaut, Robert Emde, Marguerite Stewart, Ronnie Shaw , Carol Ilvonen , Cathy Krown Buirski , Mel Singer, Rebecca Hea , and William Edwards (2004) in The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association 52:3
"Denver Analysts respond to the Columbine tragedy" by Levy, M.A., Stewart, M., Buirski, C.K., et al (2003) in The American Psychoanalyst 37(1):1 ]
We provide educational programs and a monthly educational lecture series to offer educators, scholars and interested mental health professionals access to current developments and debate within the field of psychoanalysis.

THE PEACS FUND
The activities of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Denver Psychoanalytic Society are partially supported by an Endowment Fund that was created out of bequests left to the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Denver Psychoanalytic Society. The Endowment has grown over the years, but so have our expenses. In order to meet the growing administrative costs of our programs for training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, continuing education, community education, and pro bono services, the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Denver Psychoanalytic Society have launched a joint initiative to prevent the Endowment from being eroded and, even more importantly, to promote its growth. Growing the Endowment will ensure that the Institute and Society will be able to perform their Missions far into the future.
Donating to PEACS helps preserve a precious legacy. We are able to provide top quality education in psychoanalysis and psychoanlayitc psychotherpay, serving adults, adolescents and children.

THE ENDOWED CHAIR DRIVE
As a pioneering investment in the future, the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis has begun a drive to fund an Endowed Chair for Psychoanalysis within the University of Colorado Denver Department of Psychaitry. An Endowed Chair will allow us to recruit psychoanalytic scholars from around the country.
With the help of a generous $200,000 matching grant from the University of Colorado Denver, School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, we are creating an endowment that will establish a permanent and stable academic presence for psychoanalysis in our community. We are excited about the rich educational, cultural, and research possibilities for this faculty position.
